The Odessa Record -

Keep smiling; make each day as good as it can be

 
Series: Letter to the Editor | Story 18


To the Editor:

As I grow older, I have learned to enjoy every second of every minute of life left, more than ever! The day is what you make of it! Listening to children with terminal illnesses can teach you a lot.

Being a six-year survivor of liver disease, every day is a good day, some are just better then others! Nothing is hopeless! Never give up! Even when your chance for survival in 90 days is .06 percent of one percent.

So if you just keep smiling, even though life sucks, it’s contagious, and you can make others smile along with you. Putting a smile on someone’s face or making them laugh a little is such a great feeling. It helps me forget my issues and brings a little sunshine to someone’s day! We all need that!

I always say thank you to the working cashiers, waitresses and receptionists. Crack a stupid joke. Looking for that smile! Everyone looks their best when they smile!

I challenge everyone to pay it forward with a big smile. The reward is so great. A good laugh or chuckle can work wonders for all. It’s the little things that count the most!

May everyone have a very great day and SMILE.

Pat Gamache
